Newaza is a brand primarily known for its fun and functional no gi gear - rashguards and spats -therefore when introducing our first new Gi in a very long time we were under a lot of pressure.
We wanted to develop a new Gi that has its sights set to the future, but that it’s also still rooted in the traditions of this amazing art.
We have therefore developed the new Monogram Gi to bridge the gap between the past and the future, introducing a kimono that still appears clean and simple at a first glance, but that has some innovative design elements on both the jacket and pants, without any compromise to its functionality.
Heavy Gi jackets are now behind us. New developments in technology have assured that classic weaves like the popular Pearl Single Weave are very resistant even at lower weight counts. We have therefore chosen a 375gsm pearl weave top that is incredibly able to last long years of training, but that will not hinder any of your mobility. We really love how due to our redeveloped fit the flexibility around the shoulders and armpits, an area that in older GIs was always a sore spot.
The pants are made a of light yet resistant 10oz rip stop cotton, a must for anyone looking forward to go beyond training and test their skills in the competition arena. In redesigning and improving the pants we modified both the knee and crotch area to achieve two distinct and specific goals.
The redesigned diamond shape crotch area allows for a less bulky yet incredibly stretchy region which will be appreciated by all advance guard players out there.
In regards of the knee area, we extended and inclined the stitching to better increase the functionality of the pants when bending the leg.
Breaking with tradition we added an extra layer of light padding inside the knee area that won’t compromise movement and weight, but that will give a much needed break on sore knees while passing or putting the weight down on the mats….and who are we kidding it also looks quite bad ass - check the photos below if you don’t believe us.
A few high res logos adorn both the jacket and the pants but we are particularly proud of the In Jiu-Jitsu We Trust logo screen print inside the jacket, because it’s true, life is true on uncertainty and challenges, but we can always trust in Jiu-Jitsu.
BTW we have also improved on the rope of the GI pants by swithing to a more spongy and elastic rope that not only will stay in place when tied, but it also allowed us to print the classic Newaza script all over it for extra style points.
Gi comes with a fun fully sublimated and practical GI bag, and meets all IBJJF standards for competition.
Fits like a modern tapered Gi, although pre-shrunk please allow for 5% of shrinkage.
